SCHUBERT Piano Trio in B flat D.898
SCHUBERT String Quartet in D minor D.810 'Death and the Maiden'
Music in the Round presents a series of classical music concerts in Barnsley each year at Emmanuel Church. There’s no dress code. Nothing you need to know about the music in advance. Just outstanding musicians, introducing and performing incredible music.
The music is a rich variety of classical chamber music, performed by resident musicians, Ensemble 360. These eleven musicians of international repute form one versatile group, comprising five string players, five wind players and a pianist. They are well known for their friendly and relaxed approach, which often includes informal introductions to the music.
This evening, Ensemble 360 present beautiful music by one of classical music’s finest writers of melody. Though written in the last year of Schubert’s life, the Piano Trio in B flat is remarkably bright and carefree. For contrast, the dark slow movement of ‘Death and Maiden’ is worthy of a chilling ghost story!
